Is More Block View Imagery Coming from A9?

Remember when Amazon.com's A9 might quite a splash with the release of BlockView imagery for several U.S. cities? That was in January, 2005 and since then A9 has released BlockView or "street level" imagery for a few more cities but it has been some time since any new cities came online. Let's be clear, the service is still online.

In the mean time, Microsoft is currently demonstrating something similar for San Francisco and Seattle.

While perusing the A9 site yesterday, I noticed that they're looking for "Block View Drivers" to head out and start getting street imagery into the database. So, perhaps imagery for more cities and parts of cities is on the way. More about how they do it here. Stay tuned.
